Riisa study trail in the Soomaa National Park

You will find a sign by the Jõesuu-Tõramaa Road that invites you to a boardwalk in the beautiful Riisa bog. The trail passes 8 rest stops and a watchtower.
A motorway, a car park, and an outhouse are located right by the gate at the beginning of the trail.
The hike begins in a spacious bog and briefly runs through the forest. In places like these, you can see the forest turning into a bog and vice versa – dry ground is replaced by wet land, and swamp plants with ancient spruce forests. You can also see some beautiful swamp pools by the trail.
This is perfect location for a family picnic!

Riisa study trail is also accessible with a wheelchair and a baby carriage until the first swamp pool at the 1.2 km mark.
